Nairn Golf Club has unveiled a new-look clubhouse after the completion of an extensive project to extend its popular Newton Lounge, revamp its Junior room and upgrade its cloakroom facilities. The development is part of ongoing plans to enhance the members and visitors' experience at the club and prepare for the club's 125 th anniversary celebrations next year.

"We consulted with our members and the feedback we got was the Newton Lounge was simply too small," explained Graeme Govan, Nairn Golf Club's marketing convenor. "It was clear the bar had to be upgraded to accommodate the growing demands placed on it by members, guests and visitors. It was a clear-cut decision."

The spike-friendly Newton Lounge, which overlooks the nine-hole Cameron course, has been substantially extended and now benefits from a bespoke bar and made-to-measure furniture. The busy venue has also been fitted with two TVs, one 40-inch and one 50-inch, and sports a completely new look thanks to a specially made carpet incorporating the club's colours of purple, black and gold. The Junior room has also been similarly upgraded.

With the club set to host the Curtis Cup in 2012 and celebrate its 125th anniversary in the same year, the improvements are a timely investment. "These are exciting times for Nairn," Govan noted. "The improvements are part of a much wider scheme that should be completed ahead of next year's celebrations. As with all aspects of the club, the rationale is to deliver the best possible service and facilities to our members and visitors, and I think these changes will go some way to doing this."

Nairn Golf Club will host the Curtis Cup in June 2012. By then, the club's Whitelaw Lounge, which enjoys spectacular views across the links and the Moray coast, will also receive a similar upgrade.
